Help for Crist Ballas

Crist Ballas, a longtime BBI staffer, is in the hospital with a heart condition related to COVID-19.

Crist did hair and make-up for numerous MST3K episodes from seasons 2 to 7. He was also a prop builder for MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: THE MOVIE and appeared in a gorilla suit in episode 211- FIRST SPACESHIP ON VENUS.

A GoFundMe page has been set to assist in paying what his friends and family fear is going to be a substantial hospital bill.

You can read more about his condition and make a donation here.

    Holy crap! I am all kinds of sorry to hear about this, but it’s wonderful that he’s back home again, and getting stronger. Good luck, Mr. Ballas.
